7600 does not make CEF in HARD

Unanswered Question


I configured 1 VRF in a 7600. I need to send some packets from the global table to that VRF. I configured 2 ports, one in the global table and the other in the VRF and join the 2 ports with a crossover cable. To send the traffic to the VRF i used a PBR. It works but

the traffic switched by de VRF is CEF in software, not in hardare. This configuration is supported in 7600?

Thanks in advance!!!

How have you confirmed that the packets are not switched in the hardware?

I use this command to check the same.

"show ip hardware-cef"

Also as you might know that for hardware CEF switching the module should have specific ASICs for do that job.
